The Lullaby

Do you remember that one dark night,
When I woke up
In a shivering fright?

You came and sat down beside my bed.
Your warm hands soothed
My small, worried head.

And then you sang me a simple song.
You held each note
Out sweetly and long,
Then let it drop down into the dark -
A calming prayer,
Or a tiny spark -
That somehow transformed a night of fear
Into a place
Where our God was near.
